I. Happy New Years Eve! Or Happy New Year, depending on where you are, I guess. I wish you the greatest things for 2013 :)

II. So, 2012 stats! I know the year isn't technically over, but I won't be watching any more tv or films tonight, so I think I'm safe.

696 episodes of television.
50 films.
14 books.

Most played song: Last Train Home - Ryan Star
Most played artist: aylor Swift
Most played band: One Republic
Most watched shows:
  1. NCIS (219 episodes)
  2. The X Files (75 episodes)
  3. Community (37 episodes)
  4. Once Upon A Time (35 episodes)
  5. Castle (31 episodes)
For next year, I'm setting myself goals. 750 episodes, 75 films and 50 books. With the tv and film I think I'll be okay, since it's not a whole lot more than I managed this year. But I'm challenging myself with the reading. I don't read as often as I used to, but I'm gonna change that.

III. I finished reading Looking For Alaska this morning, and oh my god. I was a blubbering, weepy mess for about an hour afterwards. It was such a good book. I'm going to start reading Paper Towns soon. Probably as soon as I get done with these dissertation chapters of doom and the assignment I still have to write which will take a week or so, I guess. But I read the first page today and it looks interesting :)

IV. YYet more memes :)

[2012 tv meme]2012 TV meme

Which TV shows did you start watching in 2012?
Bunheads, Revenge, Elementary, Alcatraz, Go On, NCIS, The X Files.

Which TV shows did you let go of in 2012?
Uh. Bones? I've not watched it since the kid was born, and I have all the episodes on my laptop to catch up but I have no desire to watch them at all. 

Which TV shows did you mean to get into but didn't in 2012? Why?
I'd planned on watching some more of the pilots this year than I actually did. I still have all o Chicago Fire downloaded to watch. I had plans to watch The Mob Doctor and 666 Park Avenue as well, but I never got around to watching them, and since I didn't hear a lot of good things, I don't think I will try to catch up.

Which TV shows do you intend on checking out in 2013?
I don't really know. I will find time to watch the episodes of Chicago Fire I have downloaded, and maybe I'll get around to catching up on Private Practice. But I'm not sure I'll pick up any more new shows. I struggle to keep up with everything as it is.

Which TV show impressed you least in 2012?
How I Met Your Mother. It does't make me laugh any more.

Which TV show do you think you might let go of in 2013 unless things significantly improve?
I don't know. A couple of my shows have let me down a little this year but they're both ones I'll never give up on.

Which TV shows do you think you'll never let go of no matter how crappy they get? Why?
Grey's Anatomy. I've tried to drop it so many times, but no. I keep coming back. And I'm determined to watch HIMYM until I know who the mother is. I've invested too much time in that show to give up now. And I really don't see myself ever giving up on Castle.
